IMAGE FEED #1: for the guys

I wanted to start doing a series of posts that were just like streams of visual info. I spend way too much time image-hunting so I have a lot to share. I'm not the best at keeping track of my sources or even what some of these things are, I'd be so appreciative if you shared with me!

I'm kind of playing visual leap-frog here, bear with me.
The first image feed post is for the guys. I don't post enough menswear here so I figure it's time for something like this.




Above three from unknown sources?
The Stone Roses, obsessed with picture #1
Shirasu_jiro1
A friend showed me this picture and told me that Jiro Shirasu was the first person in Japan to allow himself to be photographed wearing blue jeans.
From Levi's Vintage Clothing's lookbook-another obsession, check it out at this great blog here

Mick & Bianca Jagger

OBSESSED with Walter Lockwood's Sukiyaki Western series-quote from Lockwood: 

"This series expands on the work of the postmodern Italian filmmaker Sergio Leone who re-interpreted the idea of the American western film. By appropriating from Akira Kurosawas's Yojimbo and American western films, Leone used an international cast and shot in locations such as Spain to depict the wild American west. My re-interpretation of the Spaghetti Western as Sukiyaki Western points to media and culture in our postmodern world quickly and constantly consuming one another, re-creating itself anew in the process. By constructing images that cast Asian actors as Cowboys/Gunslingers from a Leone film, and staging my scenes in Pioneertown, California, I am bringing the appropriations cycle full circle and constructing a hybrid of Eastern and Western values and popular iconography that dissolves societal, racial and cultural boundaries."

I know I post Japan a lot on both of my blogs. Sorry. Watch any of their videos post '79, ridiculously good 80's style.
Expect more image feeds in the near future. Hope you enjoyed.

  9. Dear Jane,
    speaking of menswear you might like one of my closest soul friend Bri’s style. a video of him here: http://www.yoannlemoine.com/video.php?id=NYS1

  10. You should check out the taste of tea, for some more tadanobu asano, and general heartwarming Japanese absurdity. Just a choice scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCIDdyzJnp8
    But a really, truly beautiful japanese movie you should see is Tony Takitani.
    Just some preparation for your trip to Japan ;)

    After working in the mens department in bloomingdales i’ve become obsessed with menswear. i don’t even like the women’s clothes we carry compared to the neat stuff we got for guys.
    These photos are cool. I like The Man Who Fell To Earth Bowie. That was an interesting movie.

    I loves me some Bowie. I think the picture from the top of your post is from “Man Who Fell to Earth”. Fantastic movie with fantastic style.

  37. Stone Roses, Bowie as Warhol, and Ichi the Killer, plus I love that Lockwood quote. Can’t get much better than this, will have to show this to my husband immediately, he will appreciate it.

  38. Shay says:

    aw, many of my favorite things here! Japanese movies and Bowie… You should also check out the Korean movie “The Good, The Bad and The Weird” which is a Korean western. Super good.

  39. Alex says:

    I zip to your blog and Mr. Best-Thing-Since-Jesus pops up! Spectacular! And the Bowie photo under his Rock Hall of Fame picture is to die for!! I love the menswear slant; the David Bowie part is especially fine. Fantastic blog!!

  40. I love your outfits and all… So i hope we KeepInTouch.

  41. alexia says:

  42. polaroidme says:

    wow!
    amazing! love love the last pic!

  43. Isabelle says:

    Ichi the Killer/Tadanobu Asano is the AWESOMEST! (^o^)
    Please keep the feeds coming! Can’t get enough of Bowie either… So ethereal and androgynous. The Man Who Fell To Earth indeed. He is not of this world, I swear.
    Though I must say I am taken aback by the final collection part… Takahiro Miyashita is seriously not continuing Number(N)ine? (o_o)

  44. SCHC says:

    very interesting.

  45. Molly says:

    Bowie! For the boys. Psh. This was straight girlie porn. Fashion and Bowie.

    aaaaoooo so weird, yesterday i was searching the internet ang googled supreme lookbook or something and anywyas i found the same website you got that picture from “above three unknown source” but it is a picture from the skateboard clothing brand supreme…[]

  51. I’m a male regular reader of your blog (I guess Kanye West is to hey?? haha) And I want you to know I really enjoyed this post. These images are great, classic, and inspiring, and very interesting too. I also love all of the Japanese inspiration. I do street fashion inspired illustrations, and Japanese street fashion and style in general is always a big inspiration for me. The pics of Yohji Yamamoto are great too! Thanks for thinking of your other readers.

    OMG luvv this post!!!

  54. jana says:

    oh my god!! the sukiyaki western is soo perfect. its like a dream.

  55. Emily says:

    Contrary to popular belief, David Bowie does not have one blue eye and one brown eye. Both of his eyes are blue, but the pupil in his left eye became permanently enlarged at the age of 14 when a schoolmate punched him in the eye in a fight over a girl. The enlarged pupil gives the illusion of one eye being dark.

  56. Cruz says:

    These are all super cool Jane, thanks for posting! Especially Lockwood and Bowie. Needless to say Number 9 too. ;-)

  57. xAZD says:

    i love yoji yamamoto! he and his mom are so cute/awkward sitting on the couch like that

    So sublime. Love the Bowie, Japanese Western shots,
    and Number (N)ine’s face obscuring net shawls.
    Can you believe Kakihara’s suit in that final scene
    of Ichi the Killer? It’s my favorite part-
    so dreamy.

  61. Jules says:

    Love the last one photo.but all of the pics are cool.Love them all.Looking forward on your new post.;D

  62. Laura says:

    Tsutomu Yamazaki is a great actor. I was really happy that you posted a photo of him on your image feed. Tampopo by Juzo Itami is also a wonderful movie that blends East and West as well as masculine and feminine. Its very endearing. A must see movie if you have not seen it already.

  63. jfkjean says:

    The Thin Whit Duke, love him..also love the Mick + Bianca photo as well

  64. sarah says:

    cool post jane!

  65. oni says:

    all i ever want to see when i open my google reader is david bowie. thank you thank you

  66. Lee says:

    Jiro Shirasu is the handsomest, most stylish Japanese guy, I’ve ever seen. No other middle-age Asian guy can be that sexy and charismatic. Oh wait, maybe Ryuichi Sakamoto. But maybe because he made an obscure film with Bowie, and Bowie transported some of his sexiness to Ryuichi. What am I even saying?
    Thanks for this.

  67. Kathleen says:

    You’ve got great taste.
    Lovely post.

  68. Linda says:

    I just love Tony Cederteg. Such a nice picture of him.

  69. Amy says:

    aaah so good to see other japan fans about :D david sylvian + david bowie are ridiculously beautiful! loved the post.
